A New Year Resolution to read more books about economics?
It’s time for a browse through the publishers’ catalogues to see what enticing economics and business books will be out in the next few months (this is of course a non-exhaustive list – I’m happy to update this if anybody knows of others coming out in the first half of 2014).
I have to indulge myself in putting my own new book first:is published on 23rd February.

Also from my publisher Princeton University Press, I like the look of the history titleby Jurgen Osterhammel. Greg Clark’s looks like a highly distinctive take on the mobility question. Other new economics titles are by Eswar Prasad, (on banking crises) by Charles Calomiris and Stephen Haber, and T by Ian Goldin and Mike Mariathasan. The best title in the catalogue could be by David Reimer – a guide to ancient maths.
At Harvard University Press, there is Thomas Piketty’s, which I posted about recently. Also coming up, by George Borjas
MIT Press has several I like the look of:, edited by Richard M. Locke and Rachel Wellhausen; , Edited by Ignacio Palacios-Huerta; by Vili Lehdonvirta and Edward Castronova; and by Josh Lerner (“drawing on the tools of game design to fix democracy.”)
[amazon_image id=”0262026910″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]In 100 Years: Leading Economists Predict the Future[/amazon_image]
Basic has Bill Easterly’sout in March.
Later in the year Oxford University Press is bringing out, Edited by Manuel Castells and Pekka Himanen; by Daniel W. Drezner; by Hans-Werner Sinn; and by Tom Malleson looks quite interesting too.

Finally, I’m also looking forward to Philosophy at 3am: Questions and Answers with 25 top philosophers by Richard Marshall, who does the Friday morning philosophy interviews in 3am Magazine – always quirky, always interesting.
